I am totally stumped. I have a hank of Sea Silk yarn
(for yarn color, select "Topaz" that's the one I bought)
and I have no idea what to make with it! It can't be anything huge since I wouldn't have enough yarn so I was thinking of a hat and gloves, or scarf or something, but, the yarn is so fine and soft, I want it to be something really special...sophisticated and elegant, yet just quirky enough for my tastes...lol...I'm at a total loss. I've looked through Rav, Knitty, all my Interweave Knits, Vogue Knitting, and Knit1 mags, all my knitting pattern books (SnB, SnB Nation, Domiknitrix, Naughty Needles, Anti-Craft, Punk Knits) and I STILL haven't found anything "just right". Even if I were to try to create my own pattern, I still have no idea what I'd make with it...lol...I was thinking about this: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer07/PATTmarnier.html
(the hat, not the elephant
) but each time I go back to it, I really don't know if that's what I want to make with it.
So, anyone have any suggestions?? What would you make if you had this yarn, or, think I should make with this yarn. It's definitely going to be something for me since I used my LYS gift certificates for all my new yarn...lol...after 3 years of knitting for others, I'm gonna be stingy with my *really* good yarn
Thanks in advance!
ETA: I love, love, love retro styles! But, I've also gone through vintage patterns and haven't had anything jump out at me yet...grrr
